63. Some good cooks are gourmet cooks who pride themselves on always using extravagantly rich ingredients in elaborate recipes. Some good cooks can be characterized as fast-food cooks. They may use rich ingredients as long as the recipes are easy to follow and take little time. Other good cooks are health food enthusiasts, who are concerned primarily with the nutritional value of food. But even though not all good cooks are big eaters, they all enjoy preparing and serving food.
If the information in the passage is true, which one of the following CANNOT be true?
(A) Most good cooks do not use extravagantly rich ingredients.
(B) Everyone who enjoys preparing and serving food is a good cook.
(C) More good cooks who use extravagantly rich ingredients are big eaters than are good cooks who do not use such ingredients.
(D) There are fewer good cooks who enjoy serving and preparing food than there are good cooks who are big eaters.
(E) Gourmet cooks, fast-food cooks, and cooks who are health food enthusiasts are all big eaters.

D.

(D) There are fewer good cooks who enjoy serving and preparing food than there are good cooks who are big eaters.

This clearly contradicts the fact that most of the good cooks are not big eaters.

E is also wrong but D is absolutely wrong. So, I will go with D.

Here's what it boils down to:

Some Good Cooks -> Gourmet Cooks :: Extravagantly Rich Ingredients in Eleborate Recipes
Some Good Cooks -> Fast-Food Cooks :: (Easy Recipes & Little Time) -> ~= Rich Ingredients
Some Good Cooks -> Health Food Enthusiasts :: Nutritional Value
Some Good Cooks -> Big Eaters
All Good Cooks -> Enjoy Preparing and Serving Food

Hence D.

Note that it is possible for both gourmet cooks, fast-food cooks, and cooks who are health food enthusiasts to be all big eaters.
